  • Sure. Especially competitive cheer. Heck that's really impressive with all the gymnastics involved.

  • Yes I think they both are. Not everybody can bowl well and not everybody can be a good cheerleader, so I think they are a special talent, and I think they are a sport. I know that I can't bowl worth a shit!!!

  • I was a cheerleader, gymnast, and volleball player. Let me tell you-- I got more injuries from cheerleading than I did gymnastics or volley ball. Cheerleading isn't about shouting rah rah anymore. Every girl on our squad had to be able to do a standing back flip, and most of us were able to do far more.

    Bowling... I don't know. I suck at it. There must be talent to it since the pro bowlers are amazingly consistent.

  • i think bowling is a sport, i think that cheer leading is a sport... dance is a type of sport and colorguard is a sport...
    All of those get looked down on though and dont get enough credit... its a lot of work though! and all of them are VERY physically challenging! Maybe even more so than the typical sports like basketball or baseball or football....
    they are underestimated highly...
    i have a lot of respect for the people that participate in stuff like that...
    and i know how hard it is cause ive done them too lol
    i used to debate with my english and journalism classes over what is qualified as a sport... i am very stubborn... lol those ARE sports!

  • Yeah! I cheered for 11 years and it IS a sport. I have bowled on quite a few occasions, although I am not very good AT ALL. Sure it's a sport . . . even golf. lol

  • Im not to sure about bowling but i guess if they consider golf a soprt then i dont see why bowling couldnt be one. Cheerleading is a sport! I did cheer for quite a while and i would have bruises on me biger then the football players haha. A few of the people i knew in cheer you would have thought they were boxers with how injured they got. But through the injuries i wouldnt change me cheering or not.
